Hepatitis E is a viral disease that affects the liver. It is of four different types: 1, 2, 3 , 4. Genotypes one and two are said to be found only in humans where as genotype three and four can be found in animals (without causing disease but can infect humans). The virus is found shed in the stools of infected persons. It principally follows a fecal-oral transmission route through contaminated drinking water and food. It can also be transmitted through animals by eating undercooked meat or touching an infected animal. Hepatitis E is often an acute and self-limiting infection so once exposed to HEV, signs of symptoms can take from 2 to 7 weeks to show and usually last for about two months. However, sometimes a serious disease called fulminant hepatitis can develop and can be fatal. A vaccine to prevent it has been found and is currently approved and in use in China.Hepatitis E is diagnosed with the use of blood tests that show inflammation of the liver and antibodies of HEV in the blood. The symptoms include fatigue, jaundice, sore muscles, dark urine, clay colored stool, weight loss, loss of appetite, fever. There are medications available for treating HEV such as ribavirin. A report showed significant improvement when treated with ribavirin for 21 days for severe acute Hepatitis E. Apart from this, rest is necessary to regain energy. If not, it's possible to fall sick again. Plenty of water is to be consumed to avoid dehydration and the person should have a healthy mix of foods. Sanitization, though, is the best way to prevent HEV.
